In the build-up to the release, Figthting Caravans we'll be hitting the road round the UK including shows in Manchester, Edinburgh, Liverpool (Sound City) and Harrogate for Charm.
Their show at last Saturday's Live at Leeds festival was reviewed by Clash magazine online:
"Definitely ones to watch. Deep dulcet crooning tones, a love song-come-rock n roll waltz, and tracks filled with blood curdling rants, singer Daniel Clark seems possessed."
In terms of their sound, lead singer Daniel Clark said: "Each member has slightly different influences which contributes to our sound. I think the one unifying style where the bands style began is 60’s/70’s American blues music."
"As time progresses we’re learning more and more about ourselves as a collective. We’re trying to continue to exploit our strengths and writing style with a slightly more psychedelic, swooning sound."
Charm with Fighting Caravans at Major Tom’s Social, The Ginnel, Harrogate, Thursday, May 12.
